After deciding on Antonio Lotti's searing "Crucifixus" for today's #LentInMusic selection, I realized that I'd actually posted it last year, and on a very similar day. Rather than taking this semi-synchronism as a sign that I needed to find something else, I took it as a sign that I should repost it. So here it is, and it's (still) wonderful.
Once again, I'll just say that "the whole piece is powerful stuff, but I would call your attention in particular to the section that begins at the 1:48 mark, where Lotti transitions from 'Pontio Pilato' to the suffering and burial of Christ. An astonishing moment." (And playlist.)
Crucifixus etiam pro nobis sub Pontio Pilato:
Passus, et sepultus est.
He was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate:
He suffered and was buried.
